Corporate Freelance Digital Photographer (Former Employee) – Cleveland, OH – November 16, 2017
As a CG-17 freelancer I was only allowed to work 1000 hours per year. No benefits, no PTO, no job security plus I got a 1099 at the end of the year. Not a bad way to make a living and have fun in a creative environment.
We worked for 8 hours day and had one hour for lunch everyday.
Production Coordinator, Trade Communications (Former Employee) – Cleveland, OH – November 16, 2017
The culture is creative and laid back in some areas. I learned about time management and trouble shooting skills. Management was different depending on your area of the building so corporate and some loose. The hardest part was some unrealistic due dates on Catalogs. Receiving product one day and thinking you can get everything completed in day. I meet a lot of great long last friends and talent people at American Greetings. And worked on some really fun project.
Merchandiser (part-time) (Current Employee) – United States – November 12, 2017
I would retire from here if there were more hours. I liked my job. Hours were flexible which were important because I have a child at home. hardest part of the job was all the lifting because of no organization at Wal Mart.
Merchandiser (Current Employee) – NY – November 12, 2017
A great way to get engaged with your co-workers and be independent. However, part time means at least 15 hours and every week so far I got 4 or 6 hours mostly. Its like whats the use, I barely get anytime to do much. There's no rewards or updates about how the store Im working in is progressing.
Good work atmosphere but lacks room for advancement
Machine Specialist (Current Employee) – Osceola, AR – November 7, 2017
Each day is a new challenge as far as assigned work. I'm someone who really enjoys a challenge. I've learned a great deal when it comes to working with others while training them. Most of all I've learned that patience, consistency, integrity, and confidence goes a long way when it comes to day to day routines. The culture at AG is somewhat laid back but management seems to be more concerned with placing more responsibility on those who do exceptional work; yet there is no incentive or reward for its employees. The most enjoyable part of the job is the responsibility I have to make decisions when it comes to the production of my work and training of employees. Working at my own pace and being looked upon as a leader, at my skill level, are also a plus.
Part-Time Merchandiser (Former Employee) – Woodbury area NY – November 4, 2017
It was too stressful standing on my feet and doing the displays. My manager was really nice and professional. The pay was very low I was able to work near my home. American Greeting demand speed in putting up the card displays. I quit it was too stressful.
Customer service representative (Former Employee) – Utah – October 31, 2017
Chose the job because I could fit it around my busy work schedule. Hours are extremely flexible, although working around the holidays is manditory. Need to update their technology. They aren’t compatable across devices and this makes doing your job difficult. You can choose to work alone or in groups.

PTM (Current Employee) – Olney, IL – October 20, 2017
Relaxed work environment, supervisors and management are excellent, very self-motivating work culture, salary is great compared to my area. Ability to work when you want to, with the exception of mandatory due dates for activities, and it gives you the opportunity to work closely with people of all backgrounds which is great!
